Holiday Children’s Book Drive: through Dec. 15
Help share the gift of reading this holiday season by participating in our 21st annual Children’s Book Drive. The Friends of the Glen Lake Library are once again collecting new books for children, to be distributed to young readers. An anonymous “wish-list” of children is available both at the library and the Cottage Book Shop, which offers free gift-wrapping. Books should be delivered to either location by December 17, gift-wrapped and identified with the age and gender of the recipient.
Stories & More for Preschoolers
Preschool children and their caregivers will enjoy these weekly sessions, every Thursday morning at 11:00 during the school year. Joanne “Yogi” Beare shares stories, music, rhymes, hands-on crafts and more, promoting early literacy and socialization skills. This is also a great way for families to discover all that the library has to offer. No advance registration is required for this free program, made possible by support from the Friends of the Glen Lake Library.
Tech Help Desk
If you need assistance with common computing, smartphone or tablet issues, contact the library for a referral to one of our volunteer tech tutors. They’re available to help you learn the many tools available on your device: email, text-messaging, camera and photos, clocks and calendars, notes and reminders, apps, and more. Our tutors can also help you learn to download electronic books and media from the library. However, please note that our tutors can’t provide technical support for hardware or software issues. If you’re interested in volunteering for this program, please contact the library.
Lakeshore Readers book group
Our resident book group meets here in the library each month, typically on the last Wednesday, to share their insights and observations about the selected title. Their lively meetings are open to the public, with guests always welcome. A list of upcoming selections can be found on our calendar. Please note that the library generally owns only one copy of each selection. Additional copies can be ordered through MelCat or may be purchased from the Cottage Book Shop or other local booksellers.
